  1. Arthur thank you so much for your channel! I really hope you continue it because it is really informative 😁

  2. I ,so much, enjoy your videos!! I’ve been a fan of old Hollywood, since a very young age! Thank you so very much, for posting these uTube videos!!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  3. Did anyone notice the shadow on Estelle Getty’s headstone??? It looked like a young girl 😱

  4. I enjoy watching the tour of the different grave site of different famous movie stars, do you visit different grave sites of movie stars of Hollywood graves ,

  5. Charlotte Shelby killed William Desmond Taylor. Also, the name Norma Desmond from the amazing film Sunset Boulevard comes from William Desmond Taylor. A movie should be made about William D. Taylor, and this is one of Hollywood's most famous cold cases along with the Black Dahlia.

  6. I remember the day of this eclipse. It was August 21, 2017, and that day was super beautiful!! Unfortunately we only got 90 percent that day. I noticed how the temp dropped during the brief eclipse.


  8. How can you be 31 years old if you were born in 1927 but die in 1939 you'd be either 12 or coming on 13 .

  9. I'm confused by Alfalfa's age. You said he died at age 31, but why does the dates on his tombstone say 1927-1939? That would make him 11… Or is that for the dog?

  10. Thankyou for these videos!! I will never get to go there probably!! And when I do…a day tour would probably cost like $500!! So this is a great way for me to view these Hollywood graves!! Cheers!!

  11. Did anyone else notice that on Alfalfa's grave they have him born in 1927 and dying in 1939, that would make him 12 not 31

  12. Even if ur a prince or a paupper everyone dances wd the grimreapper..ashes to ashes dust to dust…sad but true…

  13. Aww I love Eleanor Powell I wish she would've lived longer so her fans could've met her, She 's my favorite dancer from old Hollywood

  14. Alfalfa was Killed in Mission Hills Ca
    Street Adjacent to
    Sepulveda Blvd. .
    He went over to a Man Supposedly owing him money 💴
    Scuffle Broke Out
    The Man Shot Switzer
    Ruled Self Defense by Court

  15. Funny tidbit Fairbanks Sr. was born May 23, this is my mom's birthday. Fairbanks Jr. was born December 9, which is my birthday. Always thought that was quirky and cool.
